Hazy copper color with a frothy white head that is slow to recede, splashes of lace. This is a very good hefeweizen. Caramel and malted wheat provide a clean start, followed by edgy carbonation bittering, and finishing with a light semi-sweet banana and spice. Well conceived, good-looking, easy to drink, not filling. Highly recommended.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2014
From draft in good shape. Multiple glasses. Amber-hued body under a properly billowy head. Sugar cookie, wheat malt, toast / bread crust, a little dough. Lots of bright esters and phenols: herbs, wood, spice, a touch of peppercorn boldness. Frothy, fine carbonation with a soft malt body made more doughy by the yeast. Off-dry and lightly tart, medium to low bitterness, high minerality, acids are bright but don’t overwhelm. This sits firmly in amber-weisse territory, the higher kilned malt give it a caramelized sugar savoriness to go with the bread crust / toast character, and the esters shy away from the banana and apple character I dislike in weissebier yeast.

Botella 50cl en Carrefour. Alemana de trigo muy rica. Quizá no tanto como la Weihenstephaner o Franzisksner pero es muy disfrutable. Muy buen aroma y sabor.

Pours a beautiful gold with a thick frothy head of off-white foam, mostly lasting. Nose is of grain and hops. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is a mild mixture of medium roasted grains with a slight yeast flavor and muted hops. Not as flavorful as some other German Weiss beers. Pairs well with nuts and pretzels.

50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 08.06.2012
Aroma is saison-like with hints of tartness and sourness. Apricot and wheat, but no banana at all. Hints of yeast and something that reminds me of weissbier – maybe the sweetness and wheat? Flavour is refreshing, a bit floury and very short – almost no aftertaste at all. No banana esthers here either, but maybe some apricot and hints of bubblegum, wheat and yeast. Refreshing and good, but a bit thin. A hefe with a saison twist.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - APR 17, 2012
Non mi è dispiaciuta per niente. Schiuma a valanga come ben si addice a una weizen. Aroma di biscotto d’orzo e caramelle gommose alla cola. Gusto abbastanza fruttato (banana troppo matura e azzarderei un passion fruit) . Luppolatura quasi assente (ma che ce ne frega: è una weizen !!!). Pericolosamente bevibile, tant’è che non ti accorgi che stai per finire il bicchiere. Il lievito d’Ettal crea qualcosa di particolare a questa birra.

(Draught @ Victoria Train Station). A very ’text book’ Hef. I was the only person in the pub drinking this. In a weiss glass the vibrant orange liquid looked way cool to contrast the inferior pisss drank by everyone else. An abundance of textures banana, clove and spicy tart like dryness . A good easy to swill wheat, as all the good ones are , not too cloying and lightly refreshing .

Kita (1030) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 13, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l. Hazy golden orange color with huge frothy white head and medium carbonation. Aroma of wheat, grassy hops and banana notes. Taste starts with medium grainy sweetness and is followed by spicy yeastiness and hint of banana, while finished is lightly bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Good one, but drank betters, too...

Bottle Rehills Ncl. Pours a cloudy amber-red and has the standard banana and cloves aroma. Very pleasant bittersweet flavour with a nutty finish, rounded and well flavoured. A good Germsn weiss
